Many Blessings. Last month I asked for some ideas for discussion in the newsletter. Thank you for your suggestions. Tell me more! Use khelly@centerforhealinglife.com to communicate with me. Do not use the webmaster’s address on this newsletter. Thanks!


I am are asking for donations for the Oklahaven Children’s Chiropractic Center, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping children return to health in a natural way. The children they serve range from newborns to teens, and many come from around the world. Oklahaven specializes in the very sick and neurologically damaged who suffer from a multitude of issues such as birth trauma, colic, projectile vomiting, allergies, asthma, diabetes, Down syndrome, ADD, ADHD through autism spectrum, developmental delays, and more. Oklahaven has been serving needy children since 1962 without state, federal government or United Way funding – they rely on support from people who believe in a natural drug-free way of life for our children. To learn more, please visit www.chiropractic4kids.com. We want to raise the consciousness of the healing power of chiropractic for the children throughout the world, and make a difference in the healthcare of our nation’s children.


I wanted to share my work protocols with you. You can go to www.centerforhealinglife.com/major_techniques.html to read up on the various techniques. The list is on the left side of the page. That drawing, of me, was done by my amazing Web designer, Marty Bunch. If you need a web site, her link is at the bottom of my site.


I am taking referrals for new clients at this time 562-433-7395 or email me at khelly@centerforhealinglife.com Email me at this address and not the one related to this newsletter. That one belongs to my Webmasters.


The veterinary orthopedic link is still up because I am still certified. However I don’t do much of this work anymore unless it is with show dogs. I recently worked with a borzoi (Russian Wolf Hound) and whippet. These are Sighthounds. They hunt by sight verses smell like beagles. I also like working on the sighthounds because they have a different kind of spine. Very unique in that when they run, and are fully stretched out in their leaping step, their spine whips them even more forward. Cheetahs have the same kind of spine. It would be interesting to know if the DNA of sighthounds and cheetahs go back to a common ancestor. They both can turn on a dime. Very dynamic speed, very similar body shapes. Compare the similarities click here.


I love Ginger which is useful for the enhancing the immune system, cutting phlegm, relieving vertigo, dizziness, settling the tummy, increasing energy like caffeine but is not caffeine which messes with the adrenal glands and hormone system. California Proposition 65 has resulted in most candied and jellied ginger from being sold. The process to dry and make candied or jellied ginger apparently causes the natural lead content to increase. I think they mean more concentrated.

This is not true in fresh ginger or ginger spice. So what to do if you like ginger on your salad, coco, smoothies and other foods? Buy a fresh ginger root and freeze it. Then you can grate the amount you want with your grater like these.

Ginger Tea with a bit of honey in the morning is a wonderful substitute for coffee.


We have all heard that green tea is the cat’s meow for health.  Right?  Maybe not. If you are into drinking green tea or taking supplements with the tea extracts and have headaches, anxiety, can’t sleep try eliminating the tea. It is recommended that one drink no more than two cups a day. Drink it early in the day.

These side effects can range from mild to serious and include headache, nervousness, sleep problems, vomiting, diarrhea, irritability, irregular heartbeat, tremor, heartburn, dizziness, ringing in the ears, convulsions, and confusion. Green tea seems to reduce the absorption of iron from food. ...MORE


Back in the day before the cocktails, little was known about AIDS. Research in the UK determined that most people fall into three categories of immunity, the ability to fight off illness. However they noticed that there was a forth category of very few people who had TEN time the immunity of the high immunity group. About 11% of the population.

After tracking down these folks they found that they were osteopathic or chiropractic clients receiving adjustments at least two times a month. We also know from research done a SC’s Sociology Department that chiropractic clients take fewer medications, spend fewer days in the hospital, have a more active life longer and have fewer sick days. They also participate in their health care and actions. They are ‘self-accountable.’

Might be time to get adjusted.

Many of my clients commit to being adjusted twice a month. They work in high travel, high demand jobs or sports and don’t have the luxury of being sick and laid up. Should you be interested in this kind of work talk to me.

There are some discounted fees to reward your commitment to good health.


You asked, “You have a lot of letters behind your name.” Yup. They are: DC stands for Doctor of Chiropractic since l978. CCSP means I am a sports doctor officially since the early 80’s. FIACA is all about oriental health care. It stands for Fellow, International Academy of Clinical Acupuncture, 1997. CVCP is for Certified Veterinary Chiropractic Practitioner in VOM Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation. CNET is certified in emotional release physiology in this case NeuroEmotional Technique. CSMD is Certified in Soul Memory Discovery which is a form of energy healing based on Kabalistic/Zahra teachings. CRA is Contact Reflex Analysis which is nutrition, TBM is for Total Body Modification which addresses hormone function, allergy stuff, learning issues, brain, digestion, just about anything related to functional physiology. It is my BIG gun for fixing things. AK/TFH is for Applied Kinesiology/Touch For Health l975 is the muscle testing.

One I seldom use is Rev. Dr., D.D. for the years of religious, spiritual studies. Then there is the typical BA and MA in science journalism/radio/TV.

Aren’t you glad you asked?

 Q. “How do you find the time to study and read so much?”

I think I have more time because I am not married nor have children. Other than work schedule, my time is open to attend classes and keep up on the research in health care.


Below is a message sent by one of the supplement manufacturers that I recommend, along with Standard Process and Biotics. There is a reason I don’t recommend over the counter products and this explains it.  Should I recommend a product please see that it is made by the company I referred to. We know that these companies are doing the right and ethical process and guarding your health.

February 5, 2015  

Dear Valued Practitioner,

There have been a number of recent items in the media regarding dietary supplements. Most recently, the media has reported on the New York Attorney General's office delivering cease and desist letters to four major retailers - Target, GNC, Walgreens, and Walmart - to stop selling certain dietary supplements. The action in New York was taken in response to an investigation conducted by the Attorney General in which 78 bottles of popular botanical supplements were obtained off the shelves of these retailers and subjected to DNA barcoding analysis. This analysis has been claimed to determine that many of the sampled products contained ingredients other than those listed on the label, and in some cases, revealed the major ingredients cited on the label were not present in the product.

The action by the New York Attorney General reconfirms the importance of testing for and affirming the "identity" of botanical ingredients by dietary supplement manufacturers as part of their adherence to Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) regulations required by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The apparent failure to do that in the instant situation should serve as a sharp reminder to any supplement manufacturer that is cutting corners by omitting routine laboratory analysis; for example, only using "organoleptic testing" as their method of confirming plant identity, or, worse, knowingly marketing substandard or substituted products.

In the absence of all the facts being known, it is not fair to jump to a conclusion regarding the merits of these actions taken by the New York Attorney General. Having said that, Thorne Research wants to assure you of the integrity of the products that we manufacture and distribute, and the actions we to take to ensure consistency between what is on the product label and what is in the bottle.

In order to assure consistency and the integrity of our products, we have developed and implement detailed and documented specifications for all raw materials, production components (such as bottles and lids), labels, and finished products. We source raw materials and components only from the best suppliers who are certified by us to meet our requirements and consistently provide materials that comply with our stringent specifications.

Thorne Research's standards for testing raw materials and finished products meet or exceed the standards set by both the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Australian Government's Therapeutic Goods Administration (Australia's FDA), thus providing worldwide governmental acceptance of our products. Every raw material and finished product is tested for microbiological contaminants, heavy metals, and other reasonably expected environmental contaminants.

Thorne Research's nutritional supplement products are recognized worldwide for their excellence in purity, consistency, and quality in manufacturing. This reputation is in large part due to the rigorousquality management and testing standards we adhere to before, during, and after the manufacture of each of our products. One out of six Thorne Research employees are directly involved in overseeing these standards.  We devote over five percent of our revenues to laboratory testing of our ingredients and products.

Thorne Research's in-house quality control laboratory and select third-party laboratories perform our precise testing methodologies to consistently:

  • Identify all known pathogens and other reasonably expected contaminants that might pose a health risk to the users of our products.
  • Verify the identity, potency, and purity of each ingredient listed on the product label.
  • Provide timely and transparent testing information on every product.
  • Ensure the integrity of each supplier in our supply chain.

We accomplish these objectives by conducting testing that utilizes state-of-the-art testing equipment that is operated by trained and experienced in-house and third-party chemists, microbiologists, and laboratory professionals for:

  • Microbiological contaminants: Testing that screens for the presence of microbial contamination or overgrowth.
  • Expected contaminants: Testing that screens for contaminants reasonably expected to be present based on the ingredient being tested; for example, pesticides in botanical extracts and heavy metals in fish oil.
    • Ingredient Analysis: Testing that confirms the identity, potency, and purity of the raw material; for example, analytical testing to confirm the identity of a raw material is what it should be - as well as the concentration and intensity of the active ingredient.

Thorne Research tests every raw material for identity, meaning the specific components included, and how much of each component is present before any item is released for manufacturing. Every botanical, vitamin, mineral, amino acid, oil, and nutrient ingredient that we receive in our manufacturing facility is quarantined and not released for production until it has been tested and its identity has been confirmed. Unless this testing conclusively demonstrates the correct ingredient and its respective properties for a particular product, the material will not be used in production. This testing is conducted in our state-of-the-art in-house laboratory, and qualified independent third-party testing laboratories. Some of this testing can take as long as three weeks. In addition, we also test for microbiological contaminants, heavy metals, and other expected contaminants; for example, pesticides in botanical ingredients, before releasing raw materials to production.

During manufacturing we conduct testing to ensure homogeneity in the mixing of the ingredients to ensure that each capsule will contain the amount of each ingredient stated on the label. We do not dilute any raw material with preservatives and no hidden ingredients are included. What is on a Thorne Research label is what is in the bottle.

Following production, and before a product is released for sale, each product is again tested for the identity of its labeled ingredients, the respective potency and purity of these ingredients, and for any risk of microbiological contamination. In other words, the finished product is tested to meet its label claim and to ensure the purity, quality, and safety of the product and its ingredients as required by Thorne Research and the GMP regulations imposed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. In addition, Thorne Research conducts stability testing to make certain that the ingredients in the product remain "active" throughout the product's expiration period.

We at Thorne Research take great pride in manufacturing pure, safe, and efficacious dietary supplement products. We can't comment on what other manufacturers do or don't do, because we don't know, but we want you to know what we do, so you may have the utmost confidence in our products.
